AFRICAN COCKERELS

new moon in the sky
who would build new jupiter
the brand venus maker
who would produce perfumable atmosphere
the crayon of good drawing
who would paint best art
the tuner of movate camera
who would cover social event
the mean man of the match
who would crook best medal
the brain source of genes
who would build fertile genius;
 
 
now result becomes risky
reason cricks the emphere
land pepperishes inmature legs
young face is squeezed
season hides no incalamity
world ascertains dreadful callous
concern refuses to heal the ache
twenty yards sew a short
solution lost the key
blanket is incapable;
to slaughter the cold
intercede attention
to crash the evilation

 

 

  PLEA FOR SAVE

O!shame becomes good character
shyness impedes gold attitude
our culture sells for priceless
parent framelines the gentilily
 
till;the children ware parent disgrace
the anger of heaven reveals on land
earth starts crying
creature complains clean hand
 
option denies to open space
people bears undeath fortitude
mother imbraces code of action
for the children to sexualise the certitude
 
heaven expresses indecent attitude
atrocity conceals proudness
fresh air begins blow hot
to soft complex of unsin people
 
causer is making comfort
mother,put us on your palm
safe children under your heart
because heaven proved bad art
before opening good eye
 
centre foul crescended
drifted off arrived
lamenteur disappered

 

SPIRIT OF DISASTER

world cloth soaked with tears
land swallowed luxury house
water flamed the assets
abjuration of air to the people
outstretched hands super limit
branched without permit
kept control under the guise
gravize the hero of the house
engulfed bridge like fire
 
damn rich shows the poor
tasten tongue like lime
live creature in empathy and doom
arriven like evil angel
going in form of helping angel
kissed lips without toasting
opening the door like owner
sentence into dark grave
hiden in air cave
buried the generation of the future
compel nature refuses to care
 
harden for hen to hatch
goat labour for two years
sky becomes unfliable pot for bird
horse derogates of carrying man
vegetables becomes unboilable
rain dries grasses
storm breaks the tree
wind lost people's eye
 
disorientate the revolution of the world
artificial ejected the clip of word
why this catasrophy?
frowning face for interrogation
why the siege of reminiscence?
gave my mind solution idea
but glue mouth to say
helping!helping!helping!
